Poetry. "Lola Haskins writes with the startling freedom and grace of a kite flying, and with the variety and assurance of invention that reveal, in image after image, the dream behind the waking world"--W.S. Merwin. The author of seven previous books and two chapbooks, Haskins lives on a farm outside Gainseville and teaches Computer Science at the University of Florida. But her poetry stands in stark contrast to many of the cliches about her profession: "Nobody evokes the mysteries of beauty and the beauty of mystery the way Haskins does" --Susan Ludvigson.
